This lot features 3 dresses, approximately from the 1920s-40s. They are sold AS-IS and all have serious or noteworthy damage.

The stripy rainbow on reminds me of this one. All three are very much the 1930's and since I know a lot of you go gaga over 1930's things, I'll just ask not to droll on the dresses, please.
